Today there is a tear in my eyes, but the fondness in my heart will always live on. You brought something special to my school days. Thank you.

 One great teacher
even through the times you lifted up my desk and put me outside, may I add EVERY period with you. You were still a neat teacher and I will never forget you Mr Parks.

I still have vivid memories of Mr Park teaching us geography - and he would yell to get the class quiet! He was a great teacher - there should be more like him.

 Mr. J. Parks
Sad to hear of Mr. Parks' passing. I will never forget his sly wit and how he made Othello much more interesting in 7th form English. Rest In Peace, Sir.

Thanks Mr Parks
I became an English teacher because of you. You encouraged me and gave me books to read. I had you as my English teacher for three of the 5 years I was there. You were such a Big man, larger than life. I have never forgotten you. Juana

 Goodbye Mr Park
I loved English and he was one of my favourite teachers. I always meant to tell him I'd become a journalist but missed the opportunity. He will be missed - he was one of a kind!

Great guy, I always remember him calling Dickens "Great Expectations" Great Expectorations. I can't see that title now without laughing.

 Memories of PK
John was a family friend - he taught my mother English at nightschool in 1967. By the time I arrived at high school my two elder brothers had already been taught by John. He took a special interest with my education and taught me that reading was fun and by plying me with books I wouldn't normally choose, extended my already over active imagination. When my mum died, I came back to Whakatane and the first person I went to see was John. He was so inspiring and extra ordinary - another of his
